Samsung starts rolling out October security patch for the Galaxy S7 edge in India

Following its rollout of this month’s security patch for the Galaxy S7 in India yesterday, Samsung has now started pushing out an identical update to all unlocked variants of the Galaxy S7 edge in the region. In addition to transporting fixes for a total of 68 Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) in both the Android OS and the company’s flagship smartphone, the upgrade also transports a handful of stability improvements and speed optimizations.

As you’d expect, the over-the-air (OTA) upgrade is being pushed out in stages. However, if you’d like to see if it’s ready for your unit, you can do so by heading into Settings » About Device » Download Updates Manually. Alternatively, you can always wait until you receive a notification prompting you to upgrade. It’s worth noting, though, that you’ll need to have at least 50% of battery and be connected to a reliable Wi-Fi network to receive the alert.
